Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon

May 22, 2008

I slowly fade away
from the battlefield
clutching what i could find
grappling with the stark reality
reality is always stranger than fiction
this is your own story
you are the only person
playing a lot of roles
a warrior before the battle
a soldier during it
now a loser after it
i slowly try to fade away
head down
walking forward
yet looking back at the battlefield all the time
like a wounded tiger
i make my way forward slowly and carefully
yet constantly keeping an eye on my opponent
i may have lost of the battle
but the war is still raging
a war of survival
where i am the
crouching tiger, hidden dragon
waiting for my turn of glory
